The Rays are not having a great week. It does not get much easier with the Mets in town. They are currently leading the NL East.
New York Mets
The Mets are pitching really well but the hitting still needs to pick it up. Francisco Lindor has four extra-base hits and Pete Alonso is on pace for about 25 homers. They need more from both and others to compete long term.
The injury to deGrom has put some question as to who will start in this one. Obviously, they have nobody in reserve at that level. We just don’t know which way they are going just yet.
The bullpen, despite all the lack of support they sometimes give deGrom has been solid. It is not an elite group definitely not a disaster either.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays are hoping to have more success against the Mets this weekend than they did against the Yankees. They lost two of thee to the Yanks and scored only 1 run in the loss.
Shane McCanahan is the future of the rotation. So far he has just been OK though. He has pitched exactly four innings in each start so you have to be careful with him because other pitchers might be pitching more than half of the game.
That means putting a lot on the bullpen and that group has been closer to serviceable than great this season. Again, you might need five innings from that group to get a win in Saturday.
Free New York Mets vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The Rays are the play here but admittedly not with a ton of confidence. I am not sure which way the Mets go on the mound and their offense is too much of a question mark.
